London has plenty of amazing things to do and see. Mention London and most people would think of the Westminster area, where famous landmarks like Big Ben and the Parliament House are located along the Thames.

It is a major business district and is home to some of England’s tallest skyscrapers, with plenty of history, nature, shopping and entertainment activities here – basically, everything you’ll get in London, except considerably quieter.

Taste of East London
While Canary Wharf is one of the major business districts in London, it certainly isn’t as dense as the popular Westminster side of the city. If you’re looking to have a taste of London that’s not as packed, you’ll love your time here. And whether you’re here on a business trip or wish to see all the historical places in London with your family, we recommend staying at our suggested Airbnbs in Canary Wharf.
